Lavish experiences

In recent years, the centre of Gstaad has developed into the most popular and shortest “shopping mile” in Switzerland.

The gourmet’s paradise of Gstaad has no less than 17 renowned restaurants, including the Restaurant Chesery which has been awarded 18 Gault Millau points. The shopping is also very high class, ideal for fashion-demanding tastes.
